Kindly id'd by Cat/ Muttering Madam on twitter, I thought this find may be of interest. I found it nearly a month ago, and have been trawling the PAS database for similar with enamelling. I have not yet found anything.
For the photo' I did dampen the enamelling with distilled water in order to enhance it a little! The mount retains some gold gilding.
It will of course go to my local FLO for recording.

I love stuff where the enamaling has survived :ugeek:
That would have looked so good in its heyday like 600 plus years ago
That bit boggles my mind
Great find and great ID too
I am not known for my ID skills, but i make a cracking brew :thumbsup:

I'd love to see how it would have looked - quite some bling!
Found in a field where I shepherd....no knights riding by now alas!
Yes, much appreciation to Cat for her time and knowledge :clapping:
